Book Description

Feb. 12 2008
The beloved original text now offered in a definitive gift edition by esteemed illustrator Inga Moore.

"Then she slipped through the door, and shut it behind her, breathing quite fast with excitement, and wonder, and delight. She was standing inside the secret garden."


First published in 1909, THE SECRET GARDEN has entranced readers with the courage and strength of two unhappy and withered children who become determined to make their lives and the lives of others around them more joyful. In this remarkable new edition, Inga Moore’s beautifully observed illustrations capture the wonder of the secret garden springing to life under the tender care of Mary Lennox; her spoiled invalid cousin, Colin; and Dickon, a Yorkshire boy.

5.0 out of 5 stars a beautiful edition Oct. 17 2008
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I tend to collect children's literature as much for the illustration as for the literary content. The Secret Garden is a classic and is well-known and reviewed elsewhere as a piece of writing. This particular edition, illustrated by Inga Moore, is also visually exquisite. Slightly oversize, it gives space for an illustrator/designer to concoct something wonderful. There are illustrations on almost every page... almost. They leave the odd two facing pages illustration-free, bringing the turning the page to be like the joyful surprise of entering the secret garden yourself. Some illustrations are full page, some are strips along the edges, some are little close-up vignette boxes as if examining individual flowers. Some are pen and ink botanica, some are creatures scurrying across the pages, some are like watermark backdrops. Most are full color and highly detailed and accurate. The story is rightly a classic for its wonderfully transforming and healing relationships. The illustration is a joy to match and highly complements the book. This is a special current edition to have in your library, even if you have another.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mistress Mary, quite contrary... Nov. 1 2003
By kate
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The Secret Garden - my mum gave me this book when I was about eight and in the front it says: "for Kate, who will stay up reading until the wee hours of the morning." and it is true. I've read this book many times since then and I discover something new each time.
The characters are wonderful, especially Mary, Colin, Ben Weatherstaff and the "Yorkshire angel" Dickon. The changes that happen to both Mary and Colin throughout the book are a delight to observe.
I feel protected and happy once I've finished this book, things turn out happily, for the best and the image I have in my head of the Secret Garden surpasses anything I have ever seen in real life - and that is fine, for this is literature.
Read it.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of those really amazing books... Feb. 27 1998
Format:Hardcover
I know many different kinds of people love this book. I think adoptees might relate especially well to the cold, protective walls Mary has built around herself - they keep out pain but also the sun - and in response to a little care, she opens up and grows stronger. A cold, brittle twig turns into green, supple branch.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Book June 4 2009
By Rob
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The book is beautifully done and my wife and son enjoy reading it nightly. He is in grade one and we were looking for a longer book to start for bed time. My wife remembers this one from when she was little. The illistrations in it really bring the story to life and after so many years she said it was a delight to read it again. My son is enchanted with the idea of a hidden garden. Our back yard and his imagination due to this story have really changed.

5.0 out of 5 stars classic and wonderfully illustrated Nov. 17 2010
Format:Hardcover
Great book of course, a classic! And loved the illustrations, which are in the nineteenth century tradition, very finely and precisely drawn. Very voluminous book for the price, a lot of illustrations! Great buy!
